The Center undertakes and supports innovative projects relevant to drugs, drug users and drug policies overlooked or ignored in public discussion and government-funded programs and research. Named for Alfred Lindesmith, the first prominent scholar in the United States to challenge conventional thinking on drug policy, the Center promotes drug policies based on science, common sense, public health and human rights. The Center's guiding principle is harm reduction, an alternative approach to drug policy and treatment that aims to reduce the harms of both drug abuse and drug prohibition. The Center produces sound, scholarly work on issues such as syringe exchange, marijuana policy, methadone treatment, cocaine, drug control policies abroad and consequences of U.S. policies. Information about the Lindesmith Center is available on the World Wide Web at: The Lindesmith Center awards two fellowships for scholarly and practical projects, The Lindesmith Fellowships in Drug Policy Studies and The Soros Fellowship in Harm Reduction and Drug Policy Reform.
